        * Plain mushrooms can be substituted for the
   rarer shitake mushrooms.
   
        On a hard surface with a meat mallet or similar
   flattening utensil, pound the chicken to a 1/4-inch
   thickness.
   
        Spread pesto on each side of the chicken breasts.
   
        Spray a large non-stick frypan with vegetable
   cooking spray (PAM, as an example) and heat quickly on
   high until pan is very hot.
   
        Reduce the heat to medium and add the chicken,
   searing 3 - 4 minutes or until lightly brown on both
   sides.
   
        Remove the chicken, set aside.
   
        To the drippings in the pan, add the broth,
   vinegar, mushrooms, and onion.  Cook for 1 minute,
   stirring to loosen the brown bits from the bottom of
   the pan.
   
        Add the browned chicken, turning to coat.  Cook 2
   to 3 minutes or until chicken is fork tender.
   
        Season with salt and pepper.  Garnish with red
   pepper, olives, and cilantro.
